Diesel Particulate Filter
When I was researching the new Diesel engine prior to purchase, one concern I had was the use of the DPF technology and the issues that can arise especially around the burn off and stopages due to forced cleaning.
I was particularly concerned because our main use is my wife's daily car where there would be a lot of stop start and vehicle would be running for no longer than 10-15 minutes at a time often only 5 minutes before reaching her destination.
We have had the car now for 4 months and have done nearly 6,000kms. Of these I'd guess 4,000km mostly are short stop and are broken up by a 400km trip every 800-1,000 kms.
We have had no problems at all with the DPF filter (or anything else for that matter).
Just thought I'd make the point in case others with a similar intended use were also concerned. Any comments would be welcomed.
